Dumbest thing you ever did in Vegas?

What is the dumbest thing you ever did in vegas? One of mine is spent 5 hours in the Paris Diamond lounge with Sal the bartender and let him pick the drinks..Don't remember much after the first two giant Blue Drinks he made me..It was some sort of Long Island..I know I lost a lot of money that night, don't know if it was gambling or LOST it...

After losing $330 at a blackjack table in only 15 minutes, $60 at the roulette table in about 5 minutes, and another $100 playing slots at the Flamingo in one evening, I swore I was done with the Flamingo. However, I let some friends convince me that I should give the Flamingo another try. Of course, I listened, and on my next trip, proceeded to lose another $500 at the same blackjack table. At least it took almost 3 hours to lose it this time.

Dumbest thing I've ever done in Vegas? Gave the Flamingo another try.

Never again!!!!

I did a really dumb thing.... its pretty embarrassing but oh well here goes:

I was in one of the casino washrooms at Planet Hollywood. You know how they have all those perfumes and stuff on the counter. Well I needed some hairspray. Oh let me tell you, I was a couple yard-slushes in, if you know what I mean. So I found the hairspray and shook it up. Lined it up perfectly... and just as I was about to spray my bangs down, the washroom attendent says something, so I open my eyes. My fingers didn't move as fast though.... bam right in the eyes at point blank range. It felt like what I would imagine pepper spray feeling like. I actually thought I was going to be blind, lol. The lady came running over to me yelling "Are you ok miss? I'm so sorry I'm so sorry.." I felt so dumb. So the rest of the day I had to walk around with super red eyes. Lol.

Got involved in a deep conversation with another player about pensions while playing 3 Card Poker and chain drinking Buds in The Mirage. Somewhere in the fog I realized that I had folded a flush. From that point forward, I lost about $400 in less that 30 minutes. I made the gods angry and they took their revenge.

Dumb, dumb, dumb. I broke every gambling rule that I preach.

Lets see I spent 4 years of College and then the next 8 years after in Las Vegas, where shall I begin......

Too many are not fit for this forum, but these 2 are:

Running on the field after a touchdown in the middle of a UNLV football game certainly doesnt rank as one of my finer moments.

Nor does placing an IOU in the ATM so I could take advantage of the automatic $100 available on all deposits over that amount. I used that $100 to go to the San Remo and play BJ at about 4am one drunken night. Luckily I won so when the BofA manager (probably also lucky it was the UNLV branch) called me the next morning and told me she needed to meet with me immediately I had cash to put back into my account.

I'm sure I've done a lot of "dumb" things in Vegas but the worst was on the trip I took for my 21st birthday. We had my birthday dinner at Delmonico ~ and I received birthday cards with $500 cash and ended up leaving them at the restaurant. Either our waiters got a heck of an extra tip or it was just $500 that went straight in the trash. I didn't even realize I left them there until a few hours later ~ we called the restaurant but no luck. Learned my lesson!

No more Escort Services !

I left a hot Craps table up a couple thousand bucks to escort my wife back to the room because she was too 'scared ' to go alone. Came back quickly but the Iceman cometh to the table. No more escort services !!!! Held on to most of the cash though, not that I told her.

Dumb enough lesson/mistake that I have not repeated it.
